Dr. Curry has been a member of ASNA since she became a nurse in 2004. She is active in numerous leadership roles and was a 2017 participant in the ASNA Leadership Academy. Subsequent to that participation she joined the mentor team and has had one or more mentees every year. She is an active mentor, contributing her presence, her expertise, and her dedication.
I became a nurse because I have wanted to choose a career where I could help others.
Dr. Curry earned her associate degree from Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, then her Bachelor’s and Master’s from Samford University in 2005 and 2008. She completed her education by earning her Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Alabama in 2012.
She is also retired from the US Air Force were she was a reservist in the Aeromedical Evacuation Unit at Maxwell Air Force Base. She has a passion for our veterans and her Leadership Academy project was to improve healthcare for veterans in rural areas.
I joined the Student Alabama State Nurses Association while in College. After graduation, I became a member of the Alabama State Nurses Association. Being a part of ASNA allows me to work with fellow nurses in an effort to advocate for ALL nurses.
